lVE v YOftk HERALD. Mew York, Tl?nr?tl?y, October 10, 1844. EiFrAORDINAR? POLITICAL NEWS. The KlecUons?Pennsylvania and Mew Jersey. Yesterday morning, about eleven o'clock, a great excitement was created in this city by the arriv il of tin express from Philadelphia, giving us returns of ihe election that took place in the Slate of Pennsylvania, on Tuesday. This excite ment \vu* produced by the intelligence of the ex traordinary revolution of opinion wnich has been produced there in favor of the whig party, and par ticularly from the rising hopes of the whigs und d- ->i'oiid;ug spirits of the locotoco party throughout th" city, in consequence of the receipt of these re turns. We never saw such excitement-t>uch aston ishment-such surprise?varying like the hues ot heaven in the rainbow, on the countenances of any class of people, as we b.iw yesterday pictured on the faces of men of both parties?the whigs, with joy aud exultation at the unexpected revolu tion in their l'avor?the locofocos, with alarm and dismay at the equally unexpected revolution against them. Annexed will be found the returns of the city and county of Pmladelphia, together with other intelligence from other parts ot the Stale, atnbracing also news from New Jersey, accompa nied with the reinurks of the Philadelphia paper* of all p?rties, thus giviug.to the full extent, all the information which has yet reached us of this ex- I traordinary revolution. If the same teeiing as that | now ruling in Philadelphia, extends throughout the State, there can be no doubt that the whig candi date for Governor is elected. According to our present information, there is a chauge of nearly seven thousand votes in the city and county ol Philadelphia, in favor of the whigs. But it is yet doubtful whether the same change has pervaded the interior of the State. We must, therefore, wait for further returns. The publication of this extraordinory intelli gence, as we have already said, astonished the whole city yesterday ; and a multitude of opinions were given to account lor this unlooked for Btate of things. The locofocos contend that the whole change or revolution in Philadelphia, haB been produced by the coalition and amalgamation of ihe " natives" and the whiffs, but that it ex tends no further. There is, certainly, a great deal of plausibility in this view, when we consider the fact that the whole of the "native" ticket have Oren elected, auU that tile whigs aban doned every one of their own candidates, with the exception ot the Mayor ot Pniladelphia. And here it is important to remark, that a great deal of dis content has been produced amongst the "natives," IU consequence of the taithlessnees of the whigs in not voting lor the "native" candidate for Mayor Mr. Kt-yaer?from whom they expected to receive the "spoils." Whether this d sconti nt can have any effect in breaking up the coalition between the two parties, so as to make the locotoco portion ol the "natives" revert to their original centre, we do not know, but we doubt it very much Nowf the view taken by the locolocos is, that tUis revo lution is confined entirely to the city of Philadel phia and the suriounding townships, but does not pervade the State at large. A few days, however, will determine this question. These are the views taken of this strange and j singular result by the locofocos. On the other hand, the whigs declare that this extraordiunry re volution in Philadelphia, is only the commencement of that activity of public opinion, woiking on the sensibilities of the intelligent toruort of the Ameri can people, by which und through which the great mass of " neutrals," who have staid uway trom the polls during the lasi three years, will now come out as they did iu 1840, and carry Mr Clay at all hazards. There is, certainly, some plausioiltty in this opinion; but as noon as we receive the re turns trom the States in which elections are held this week, Pennsylvania?Ohio?New Jersey and Georgia, we will be able to pronounce on its philosophical accuracy. It may possibly be so. A great deal during the last few months, has been said on this very point, enlightening both parties, and showing to both parties the astouuding fact, that during the last three years nearly sight hundred thousand voters have Btaid away from the polls. If this immense mass of voters can be brought out in the various State elections this fall, j and at the Presidential election next month, and a ' Urge majority of them are intelligent enough to take the side of Mr. Clay, and they generally are j the most intelligent and respectable portion of the j community who abstain irom voting, there can ; be no doabt that Mr Clay yet stands the best chance 1 of being elected President of the United States. The whole question of the next Presidency will ; hinge on the movements and elections of this week, and we shall know in a few days whether : the unexpected result of the election in the city i and county ot Philadelphia is the effect of a mere local revolution, produced by a o??itioa of the " Natives" and the whigs, or whether it has not been produced by a general movement of the great mass of "neutrals," who have come out \ and taken sides partially in favor of Mr. Clay, and who will probably elect him. There certainly is an immense vine out?more than 2000 have been i taken in Philadelphia alone, than in the election of | 1840;and that gives some indication that a revolution . has commenced that will elect Mr. Clay. In that i case,his prospects will rise in a few days to a higher , point than they had ever reached befoie. It Pennsyl vania should be closely contested, or Markle elect- j ed, the chances are that Mr. Clay will be next ; President of the United States in Bpite of all the j forces which the locofocos may bring against him. All this will he determined in a few days. KJectlon Returns. PENNSYLVANIA. A Olobiou* Whio Victokt ir?

Thu,ol course, added considerably to tho vote ol each of the parties, a? it it Well known, that the n u in her of lair Weather voters in the city, Is by no mean* diminutive Notwithstanding the crowded ataie ol the {lolls, admirable order prevailed, both in the city anil near districts, throughout the day. A genetai diaj.o sitioii was mainietted, in all quarters, to vote early, and 'u j00 ""k'l P'Wtated contusion in the after pait ol the day . By eight o'clock, lines were loimed at most of the voting places, anxiously awaiting the opening el the poll- ; ami Hibaerjuenily, throughout the day, long lines ol voters were stiHtched out?each man waiting lor bit turn to approach the window. A sttiking characteristic ol this election, w as the general turn tut ol voters, and too interest which every man seemed to take in the result ol the election. Men appioached the ballot box, at it to dii-chaige a momentous duty, and ev< ry one appeared lully to appreciate the importance of his vote The re turns will certainly exhibit a great numercal increase, iu the vuto ot this over last ytar. Vi iy few hangtrt b?ck wire suffered to remain unsolicited. The ward or gaaizjtions ol the different parties, weie more pertect thit ) eai than ever heioie ; und every ward in the city und county was, therefore, more tho oughly canvassed. We never recollect ?line-sing such a gen ral cessation ol buoinets upon the occasion ot an election as was visi ble throughout P .iladclphia yesterday. Every thing seemed tu indicate a general holiday But little work was done amongst mechanics, shop-keepers were without cus tomer-, anu merchants niore i usily engaged in discussing the probable result ol t e election and| its future effects upon businett, than in devo ion to their daily concerns. And no*, withstanding this general cessation ol butinttt, we do not recollect a more peaceable and orderly elec tion There was no saturnalia?no lighting?no indeco rum through th?< day, excepting some few of the little amateur skirmithes which are unavoidable upon such occasions, and which result only (o the infamy of those who are foolish enough to engago in them. The previous ly talked of and anticipated dtKturt ancet in tome ol the districts, led to a gcnei&l iffjrt to avoid them Each ol the parties manitested an indisposition to bear the odium ol beginning such proceedings, and all, theretore, strove to keep them down. The resul was a most happy one, and instead of rowt and riots at the opening of the polls, order and propriety prevailed. The pobabie retult ot the election?the prospects of the '? Natives" in the city?the Democrats in the county ?and the majority with which Markle will leave the city and county o. Philadelphia, were each the subject of ex tensive and earnest discussion, yesterday. Thousands of persons engaged in it, and a multitude of conflicting opin.ons was the result. This election, at least so lar as our local candidates were concerned, baffled the skill ol the most shrewd political calculators. Each party were, at timet, uuder the influence of confidence and doubt, to equally did thr popular vote appear to be divided. I'he result ol ourcity and county election will not only irfliieiicts the Presidential vote throughout the State, out in every part of the Union, It the vote given in the v.irinu* n.muiiM??tbi> oviuiiiuuweuim yest rday, turns out, .in we confi Irmly believe it will, in favor of the. greut principle ol protection, ami against annexation, free trade, ani. tne u hole catalogue ol accompanying measures, then ii may be regarded as Certain that Peunsy ivania will give her >uppoit to lieuiy Clay in November. And even should .Mr. Shunk be elected (ioveruor, by a few hundred majority, Mr. I.lay may still receive the support ot tho State?lor many ct the iiiericls ol Mr Shunk are also ar dent advocates of American industry, and the prosperity ol Ainuncdu workmen.? Daily Ch-on. (Ntulrat,) The Election ?Rarely has the morning ol an elec tion day in Pennsj Ivarua, dawned with tairer prospect l-T the voters thin it did yesterday. It was a lovely clear day, a constant tunthine alter a cool Irosty night ; and at an early hour, the persons that are designated by the party meetings, to attend to purty interest! at the polls, were duly assembled. We are told that many ef the window committees were at their post long buiore day break, where they were compelled to stand, and to stand fi m, in order to bold their place against the cem mluee ol Home other party The poll* we e to be opened at 8 o'clock, A. M , and shortly after seven, the voteis began to assemble in front of their respective windows, each ol which was dtfigna ted by a large sign, and as others I'trived.a line was bum ej, so that ?' first come first served," might be the rule of I the place In some of the wards, msny hundreds hail joined the line heioie the poll was opened Shortly alter j 8 o'clock the hell was rung, and the voting was com menced in most ol the wards. In one, the voters were de? 1 lained more than hall an hour awaiting the anival ol the ! Assessor, who may Dot care lor the bard things suid ol I him but others c?re lor a cool stand on the dump brick' lor an hour or two The mode ol arranging the voteri in a line is excellent for preserving peace and quiet. People do not like to lote theii place loi go**iping, disputing, or lor quarrel ling, and to they mind their own business; and, as aeon sequence, things go on very well, us they generally do, when there ts litll*- in'eifi ren<"e. The nun ber ol votes polled at 1 o'clock P M , was much larger than had ? ver b? fore been polled at that time The display of placards was tin usually fine and numer ous, there being thiee parties in the Odd besides the abo litionists. Carnages with music, and some with placard*, lor conveying voters to and from the polls, were numei out and active. n pisiu g along the polls before 3 P.M., we could hear no angry discussion, though the various standard bearers teemed ro be *n earnest and proud of the cognizance* of their psrty Throughout the evening there were immense throngs of people around the State House, but as lar ai otirohsu va tion extended, there were noticed very lew improprieties. In consequence ef the heavy vote polled, it was necettary to keep open the poll rather later than usual, and then it took proportionately longer to couut off". In addition to this, the whole State Domination is on one ticket, and us there is much scratching, the time off counting off'will be so inuch the more protracted. We scarcely hope to ob tain any returns for oui edition that goes out in the mid night mail, for the west. In the meantime we may say, that the majority for Mr. Markle in the city aud county will exceed all the expectation of hi) Iriendt and the worat leart of hit opponent*.? V. S. Gazette? (Whig.)

Hun dreds of both parties flocked to Jersey City at about 11 o'clock, to await the arrival of the carr from Philadelphia. At about a quarter before ele\cn, ths alarm bell was heard, and all rushed to hear the reeulf, but there were no shouts of victory, and the knowing ones immediately concluded that the (rain had brought no whig news Not a slip ?>r extra from a whig print could be found, but the independent and democratic press had aent hundreds. It will be seen that in all the interior cnuntie6 heard from there liaa been a great democratic ftaiu over the vote of 1S40 The vote in Phi'adelphia city is 9,270 for Markle, I whig,) and 6 264 for Pnunk, (democratic ) The c umy atanda, for Markle, 14,573, for Shunk, 12fi35 Whig majority in the city and count), 5 913 1..

It is probable that the " Native " Assembly tick et for the County, as well as their County Commis sioners and Auditor, has been elected by a small jority. It will be seen that there is an increase of the vote of Philadelphia City and County, over 1840, ot 5,$20, and that the whig majority for Governor is 5,943.

Madame Otto's Benefit.?The benefit of this delightful cantutrice will take place to-night at the Park Theatre, when the opera of " La Sonnam bula" will be performed, with Mr. Jones as the principal tenor. One of the first fruits of the new opera of Mr. Jones has been to reveal, more generally than was before known, the superior power of Madame Otto as a singer and actress, and in the opera of " Sonnambula," an additional at 'raction is given. On this account alone the benefit ought to bring foith all her friends and admirers, and make it a bumper. But there are other considerations of a more general charac ter, which will operate in her favor. For many years Madame Otto has been in the habit of ex tending the aid of her prof essional services to every charitable and benevolent institution, in the moBt generous and liberal manner. The frequency ot this lady's generous and gratuitous efforts in the sacred cause of charity must be well known to the people of this city, and we are confident that the recollection of her liberality will render her benefit what it ought to be, a Rtateful acknowledgment of professional and private worth. Madame Otto has resided many years in this city, and has always been distinguished by amiability and respectability in private life. Let it be a bumper. Mr. Webster in Town.?This gentleman made his appearance in Wall street, yesti rday, and ac cording to the s'atement of Mr Inrnan, the sucerB sor of Col. S'one in the Commerciul AdvtrtiMr, he was mobbed by the brokers in the vicinity, till anxious to hear his opinions of things in Pennsyl vania, whence he had just returned. There was never such a sensation created thereabonts since the time when Mr. Biddle made his appearance in the same locality. Thk Irish Repeal Meeting last night.?This meeting, in point of number?, enthusiasm, and the amount of cash subscribed, far exceeded any of the Irish repeal meetings for a long time paBt. The speeches weie quite in the usual strain and pre sented no features ol novelty or interest. It will probably be followed up, and doubtless the revived movement will exercise no inconsiderable influ ence on the result of the election in this city and throughout the State. The Catholics will come out universally with unusual force at this election. Egyptian Antiquities.?Mr. Gliddon in thk Court of Sessions.?A very interesting report o' a trial in the Sessions will be found in this day's paper, in which Mr. Gliddon, the celebrated lec turer on Egyptian antiquities, was the principal witness. His discourse on fisticuff* in Broadway, with the Recorder and Jury for an audience, is far more amusing than any of his lectures on the Pharaohs of th? Nile. Panorama at Niblo'b.?The panoramic view ol the city of Madras, now exhibiting at Niblo's, is the most magnificent thing of the kind ever seen in this or any other country. It is a most astonish ing production of one of the greatest artists in Europe?W. Daniell, R. A. Just go and see it. Italian Opera.?The beautiful opera It Pirata was performed again last night, to a most brillian1 and crowded house. There will be no ballet to night, as preparations are making ibr the com mencement of the new season, with the new jrrima donna, Signora Pico, from Italy, a very beautiful woman, and an artist of great talent. The ballet, the best of the kind produced in this country, may be revived herealter. Garreau'sConckrt.?Don't forget that Mr. Gar reau, a great artitt on the violoncello, gives hib concert to-night.

From the establishment 01 the Episcopal Church in this country, up to a very recent period, it has been free from trouble or difficulty of any kind, and has escaped the agitation of any controversy, either doctrinal or otherwise. It has not been bo with othe* branches of the " church militant." We have seen the Presbyterians split into two fiercely contending factions, denominated the " old lights" and the " new lights," differing chiefly on some abstractions on the atonement and predestination. Contending about these abstrac tions, more evanescent and more difficult to grasp than Virginia abstractions, the Presbyte rians have managed, for years past, to main tain a very comfortable state of discord and commotion, sufficient to make the saints in heaven weep, and Satan, with his at tendant spirits, rejoice with the greatest glee. After the Presbyterian split came that of the Me thodist, who were for many years united in affec tion and harmony until they split at the Conven tion last year on the rock of slavery. We need

not allude particularly to the Mormon difficulties, for they are well known to all. Even the Catho lics have had their difficulties,growing out of a con flict between the Romtsh'principle of church go vernment and the free laws of this country relative to the tenure of church property. Now, at last, we have the Episcopal Church, hitherto so amiable and peaceful, presenting the aspect of a torn and dis tracted sect?all the result of Puseyism, as they term it, or a tendency towards Romish observances* rites and ceremonies. What may be the result of this difficulty in the Episcopal Church, it is not.easy just now to fore tell. It is very evident that there is a singular ten dency, not only in the Episcopal Church, but in many other of the churches of Christendom, to the introduction in their religious observances and ceremonials of worship many of the peculiar forms affecting the seuses, which are characteristic of the Romish Church in her highest State of musical and pictorial perfection. The Episcopal Church, in its tenets and observances, is much more nearly allied to the fine arts, music, painting, and paetry we may indeed add, than to the intellectual and se vere sciences of ethics and theology which have impressed their character on the Presbyterian Churches. We are, therefore, not surprised to see a decided tendency in the Episcopal Church to a poetic and almost religious veneration for the Vir gin Mary, and the other saints, of the calendar, with all the imposing ceremonials of the Romish faith. Altogether, these differences will furnish quite enough material for the abstractionists to fight about, and eventually to divide the church. In all these movements and controversies, however, it is interesting to mark the progress of mtud, the movements of reason itself, in matters of religious belief and observance.

There was announced to be a meeting of the Youn^ Men's Clay Club last eve ning, in the National Hall, Canal street, and long before the time appointed for the commencement ot business, the room was crowded to excess, all anxious to have the latem news from Pennsylvania and New Jersey. In the street there were btil1 greater numbers; on the stump busting in lrout ot k16 *?*"? 'here wtw a party addressing those around hun "on the great, glorious, and signal victory gained over locofocoiam in Pennsylvania," ana loud and long continued shouting and cheering. On the opposite side, on the steps of the Catholic church, there _ was another party, at the very top ot his lungs announcing the cer tainty ot a whig triumph in New Jersey; while on the right and left there were other parties equal ly active in spreading accounts of all they had heard, seen, understood, and knew of the glorious progress ot the whig cause and Ilenry Clay. In the room there was some little delay before the business ot the evening commenced; during which tune the din of voices was beyond any t. ing we have ever heard there before. There were cries ot " What's the news trom Philadelphia"?" Let us have the last returns"?" Three cheers lor Penn sylvania;" which were given most heartily, and one cheer more. /"Thrae cheers for the Young Men's Clay Club," was as heartily lesponded to.? Loud cries tor the Clay Glee Club then succeeded; but it was announced that they were nor present; then Mr Dixon was as loudly called tor to favor the meeting with one of his original songs, but liKe the former he was absent. Tnen there w?s loud I crieB for " Hoxie," Hoxie," but he was like tlie I others not forthcoming; various alders were called I upon with like effect. At length the President ot I the Youn^ Men's Clay Club, W. D.

Mr 1) OaiMAM, who proceeded to address the me t I ing, congratulating those present on the success in the I Keystone State, and begged ot all those present to go and I do likewise. Alter goiug over some of the old arguments I on annexation, tariff, kc. itc., proceeded thus, ior about I hall an hour, and was frequently met with the most up I roaiious applause. Those preseut ware evidently not de I sirous ol hearing long-winded worn-out details, and ten I liases reluted statements aud arguments. There were now loud cries ol " roiulinson," "Tomlin I son " It was announced that Mr. Tomlinson was not pre I sent. Cries were then made for "somebody," but no one I came forward to the iuv nation. /Then the cries ol' "The I Cslae Club," "The Glee Club;".after some time the mem I bers ol the Olee Club came forward, aud sang some ol I their bestgie.sand catches, amid the most uproarious I cheering. The tint was I "Matty, on the shell y ou are laid, Aud so good by e to l'olU." rnis was succeeded by | ''Uou't you sse the same old coon 1 hul a stirring up with thunder." I Afterwards a very hamorous ditty, to the tune of the I Poor Workhouse Boy, commencing "John Ty ler sat in the White House chair," I wbich created great laughter and ai plause. Anotber pause I ensued and there were loud cries ot "Hoxie, Hoxie," I''White, White," these not forthcoming, there were re I newed cries of Dixon, Dixon," but it was said he had I gone to Jersey, to lavor the Blues with a new song he had I written expressly lor then, ot which the loilowwg is a I sample Ye farmers of New Jersey, I'll slug a song to you : About oue Jesse Cowdrick?

(Oreat cheering ) I A youth then came forward and attempted, in a most I misernole tone ol veice, to sing, I "Get out of the way, you are all unlucky, I Clear the track tor old Kentucky." I Here there waa another pause, when similar cries to the I pre. a liog were made, but with no better success. I The Chairman said that he had received lulormation I irom Jersey City of a most gratilyiug nature.? I It was that the city had given for the whig I party with a majority of li(H). This announcement I was received with such a burst of checriug as is seiiloui I ueard. " Three tunes three cheers " weie given ler the I Jersey Blues, with one cheer more, every one rising I from bis seat. The news lrom Jersey was soon taken Ik I -hose outside, and the shouts upon its receipt, if possible, I were still greater than those in the room. When ordoi I a ad been somewhat restored? I Mr. J.

I Thegeudaman was about to proceed further, when a I loud snout Irom those outside and the sound ot music I n?do it kuown that the Knickerbocker Club was close at I hand. They shortly alter entered the room amid consid I arable cheering, headed by a baud of music playing I " The Campbells are coming." I Mr. Aid Bcmsom, the President ol the Knickerbocker I Club, then came forward and said that, according to the I invitation sent to the Club which he had the honor ol I presiding over, they had come tojoinlha Toung Men's I C.ay Club in a procession to the Astor House, to meet the I Hon. D?uiul Webjter Three cheer* were then idosi I aeartily given for the Knickerbocker Club ; three others I for the Young Men's Clay Club, and three more for the I Key Stone Mute. | Mr. Missinij then came forward to favor the meeting I with a song, which cieated considerable laughter an" I sheers, particularly one part which said, I " Jemmy Tolk's race is run, The news trom Philadelphia is come? I At which Levi slamra cursed and swore, Say ing, he never saw such a thing before " I The gentleman then sang another song? I ' Never to the White House can you go Jemmy Polk. I Never to the White can you go." I The two alubs at the request of their Presidents, then I formed into a procession five deep, headed by their bauds I and proceeded along Broadway -owards the Astor House' I I here could net belewer than H>,imm> in the procession by I the timo it reached the Astor.

Repeal Meeting at Tammany Hall Last Kvenlng?Immenae Knttiuslasm?-Large Subscription. The meeting of Irish Repealers at Tammany Hall last evening was crowded to excess, and was marked by the moat enthusiastic display of Irish feeling and national sympathy?such as has usually characterized the Irish Repeal demonstrations in this city. At the hour appointed for holding the meeting, an immense concourse ol the (riends of Ireland were in attendance, aud blocked up the passage leading to the large room where the meet ing was held. A si'lendid bust ol O'Connell, which was presented by one of the most ac tive and* leading friends ol Repeal in this city, Mr. Harry Lungion, was placed in a conspicuous position on the platform, amid the moat enthu siastic anil deafening che'-rs, long before the hour of meeting. The gallery was filled with Heveral of the " fair daughters of Erin, who seemed to take a lively interest in the proceedings. At seven o'clock the Secretary, Bartholomew O'Connor, Esq., called the meeuug to order, when Chsklks O'Conor, E?q , was called to the Chair amid the moat deafening cheers, which listed for several mi nutes. On taking the chair, Mr. O'Connor addressed the meeting at considerable length in the old hackneyed strain of repeal eloquence. He commenced his remarks by stating that the friends ot Ireland were overwhelmed with the lesult of the rccent decision of the House of Lords, a decision which had astonia.ed both Europe and America. When tho iniquitous laws of England which were always executed so as to oppress Ireland, were taken into consideration-the judicial department, whlpb was invariably uxed to defeat the ends ol Justine? the other various oppressions which Ireland had been subjected to by the enactment of the penal laws, and cor rupt influence of the tory governments in England-they had every reason to congratulate England on the purity of the law tribunals of that country, even at the risk of party predilections. Mr O'C took a long review of the lute imprisonment of O'Connell, and took occasion to con gratulate the friends of Republicanism on the triumph of popular principle over the corruptions ot a narrow minded oligarchy, whose oppressions bad ground down the people ot Ireland during a long night of bondage and penal oppression. O'Connell had triumph ed, and bo matter how fanatics may sneer at the successful issue of the contest being attributed to di vina agency ; he still would urge on the considerations of those around him, that the all-seeing eye of Providence always kept a vigilant aruard upon human liberty and rights of the masses. (Loud cheering) He next pro. nounccd a withering pbillip c upon Lords Lyndhurtt and I Brougham, and gave a fnw hard knocks on the head to I thu ?'Natives," so called, for their arrogant assumption ol principles, which did not properly belong to any cl?s of men professing Republicanism, and concluded Sub scriptions were here poured in with a degree ot entLtisi asm only equalled by tho last meeting at Washington Hall, and among the contributor* were several Irish and American ladies, the announcement ol whose names was received with loud cheers. Henry H. Brunt, Esq , succeeded Mr. O'ConoritNhe Chair, and made a very vehement and windy speech, covering the entire ground of the Repeal doctrine.? He proposed a aeries of resolutions in relation to the re cent imprisonment and liberation of O'Connell, which were unanimously adopted. M. T. O'Connor, Esq. of the " Irish Volunteer," made alao a very eloquent speech, which was leceived with marked enthusiasm. A committee was then appointed, consisting of P. S. Casserly, J Cauldwell, and B. O'Connor. Esqs , to pre pare an address of congratulation to Mr O'Connell,which was read and adopted. Horack Orkklkt enme in at the end of the meeting and threw out some soft soap in order to catch a ew Irish votes for the whigs, but some of the Paddy's were heard to say, "cant come it." At the conclusion of the meeting, the Secretary announced the receipts to amount to nenr $800, when ou motion, the meeting separated. The Fair?Address on Silk. There was an immense augmentation of the number of visitors who attended the Fair of the American Institute yesterday. From nine o'clock ill the morning until 10 P.M., a continual influx ol persons clearly denoted that this exhibition and the proceedings attendant on this annual celebra tion are duly appreciated by the community; tha* the cause of American industry, American manu factures, have come home to the understanding of the intelligent of all classes, and that the propi tious career of this institution will be carried on and perpetuated until it become the insliument of asserting the same pre-eminence of this land itt artistical skill, which it possesses in its civil insti tutions. It was with no small difficulty that visitors made their way through the throng yesterday evening, and certainly it required the entire effulgence of the massive chandeliers to make plain the way wherein ladies and gentlemen were to go, as turning the corner of some bench or table, or hemmed in some entrance from one room to an other, they awaited patiently an outlet from the steady and no less intensely occupied persons who passed, or were striving to pa^, in an opposite di rection. In such a predicament, wide sleeves were doubtless an impediment; in such a fix, bouneis must frequently have become unfixed ; in a similar jeopardy, no discreet underwriter could insure bus tles without a weighty additional premium. Not to talk of the hum, the din, the criticism, the con versation of the crowd. The reflecuve observer found in all this nearly aslarjje an amount ol ob jects presented to his mental eye, as wire strewn, thick as the leaves in the forest, before his out ward organs of visions; but as the motion of all these ideas through the mind were vastly superior in celerity to ttie motion of the crowd, none of them will be, chronicled ou this occasion. Instead of that, we will proceed to advert to the delivery of the Address on Silk, which took place at half past seven o'clock,in the large siloon, in one eni of which a temporary platform was erected for the purpose. General Tallrnadge, as President of the Silk Convention, called the meeting to order, and introduced Mr. Barber, of Norfolk, who met, on rising, a hearty reception. He observed that all subjects connected with the development of the resources of the country were in teresting, and he felt so on that occasion. He felt it waa lime to survey what had been done, and what yet re mained to be done in fostering American productions, but on no subject was there a more lively interest telt than ou the culture ol silk in this country. At the call of the In stitute the friends ol the cause were assembled, and had devoted tha' day to the topic Just mentioned. They had come p e,>ared to advocate it, as <ime and care and study Hud furnished them with abundant and satislactory incl ination in relation to it, and data fully adequate to dtmon ?trate that silk could be cultivated ou this soil as well and better than in the silk-growing countries ot Europe? that its growth waimjre rapid bars?that this climate was better adapted to ihe silk worm-that whilst the average loss In Europj in rearing the worm* whs t wenty-flve per cent, it )id not am >uin hero to .nora than Ave per cent They had full proof, too, thai the quali y id home groivn silk wmk preferable to foreign, and mi* as sertion could be sustained by documents lrom the nio?t eminent silk mat ulactuieis, not only ol thi?, but ot thu nld couulry. One lac. he would slate ia illustration of these allegations In the montu ot May last, there was pi mted on the banks ot the Ohio a mulberry in e; it ve getated. budded, put lorth ,ts leaves and blossoms, upon which, on the firktol Juue.weie de, osited thegejm ol the silkworm They were prodao d, nurture.i, reared?and at that moment?alter a period ot less thun six months,the hi Ik produced by those worms was maeutacimeu into a beautilul fabric, which was deposited in the loom ol that institutionj(cheer ). It was American soil, and sun, and showers, and skill?it was Ameiicau genius that did that, and it was lit to remove all doubt on the matter Their labours had been luttly successful in a high degree: they had surmounted many dilKcullies thrown mound tha i' progress, and that of silk culture, by the itisa- trous, speculating and commercial explosions of IKS.
